Thank you for your feedback.
They fit perfectly, and are an awesome product for the money.
The construction and fit is perfect for Wing Chun class taught in a Kenpo Dojo with soft rubber like flooring.
I started to think about how my vegan shoes were blocking the earths energy.

    They're very comfortable, and really good bargain.

    Given this inconsistent quality, I could only give it a rating of two stars.

    Size Name: 43 EU Verified Purchase
    I wish I had discovered these years ago. I wear a size US 10.5 in almost every shoe, and I wear a size 43 Kung Fu shoe. I ordered a size 41 the first time around because I did not understand the sizing chart. You need to take a pair of shoes that fit you comfortably and measure the bottom of the sole from the toe to the heel. If the heel wedge on your shoe flairs out, don't measure the length of the additional bit of sole, just the point where your heel cup comes straight down. Measure to the closest quarter or eighth of an inch and compare to the sizing chart. When the chart reads 10.5, it means 10.5 inches, NOT US Mens size 10.5. If your measurment doesn't match exactly, then round down to the nearest quarter inch because you want the fit to be a little more snug than loose. These shoes work great on the stained concrete floors in my house although my intent is to use them for wing chun classes on judo mats. These shoes are super light, they look and feel great, and are well worth the price.

    These shoes are just the right thing for indoor Tai Chi class. They allow the foot to move without resistance.

    Size Name: 43 EU Verified Purchase
    I bought these shoes because I needed some non-slip footwear for karate class. I wear a 10 US so I got a 43 according to the sizing chart for men. Unfortunately, there's about a half of an inch of room at the tip of the shoe. The shoes don't fit badly, though. The sides and back fit snug enough that you could walk around in them without a shoe slipping off. Another user mentioned actually measuring your foot heel to toe and ordering the corresponding size off of the sizing chart. I would definitely recommend doing that, and leaning smaller rather than larger, especially since these shoes are made of stretchable material. I'm going to try to shrink my pair in the wash since it's past time for me to return them (and since the returning procedure seems like a hassle). I will update with how that goes. Also, note that the seller has a 10 day return window, so if you don't place a return by then, the sale is final.

    Here's what I think is most important to note about this shoe: it is NOT suitable for Kung Fu, Karate, or whatever other physical activity you may do in them that requires quick and constant movements. If you are using these shoes for Tai-Chi or some light work you should be fine even if you don't size down. If you are using these shoes on carpet, rubber mats, or maybe some other textured material, you should be fine even if you don't size down. However, these shoes do not work well in martial arts, because the soles are slippery on hardwood and other smooth surfaces, and because (as in my case) if you don't get a snug fit all-around, the heel tends to slip off when training. I finally got to use these shoes in actual karate training today (instead of just walking around or messing around at home). I could not stabilize myself all that well to throw kicks.

    The shoes are well made and much like other Tai Chi Shoes I have had. My husband gave them to me for Christmas and he followed the size chart. They were way too small. It turns out that with this company, we have to request an exchange slip. I did that over a week ago and there has been no response. For this reason, I only give it two stars.

    They fit perfectly, and are an awesome product for the money. I wear a U.S. men's 9 and bought a 42. I am using these for TaiChi on a matt indoors. The footing is sure and not slippery, I have walked through my house (tile floors) and they were fine. So I'd recommend these shoes to anyone looking for this type of footwear. Shipping was fast. Hope this helps.

    Size Name: 38 EU Verified Purchase
    The first pair of the cotton sole kung fu Tai Chi shoes was excellent. It arrives timely, and the fit was perfect. So, I ordered a second pair in a week. The second pair also arrived quickly. However, the fit was all wrong even though I ordered exactly the same size as the first pair. The left shoe seems larger than the right one such that it keeps slipping off my left heel and makes proper walking nearly impossible. The quality of the product seems inconsistent from one pair of shoes to another. That is the only reason that could possibly explain as to why the first pair I bought fits perfectly while the second pair of the same shoes and same size fits terribly -- too big on both feet and the left one won't even stay on my heel. Given this inconsistent quality, I could only give it a rating of two stars.

    A lightweight comfortable shoe. Moves great on carpet as far as spinning and such. They also keep my feet warm around the house.

    Size Name: 45 EU Verified Purchase
    I bought my last two pairs in Chinatown NY and they lasted about 10 years each. I worried I wouldn't be able to find them online but these are worthy successors. I wear them with orthotics and at first they seemed a little small. But the cloth adjusts and they seem well made. I ordered size 45 for my size 11 feet, so they run small.
